Artefizio arises from a reflection on the model of consumerism . The latter has being offering new consumer goods and it leads to both a progressive de- valuation of the purchased products and the consequent exploitation of natural resources and energy . Artefizio is aware of the urgence of promoting a reorientation. Every resource is limited and for this reason it got an infinite value . Nowadays, the production of high quality and durability material is possible in virtue of the scientific and technical progress. Such materials can hardly be defined as waste. In spite of market dynamics, waste objects are still usable thanks to the value of their unlimited properties. This kind of awareness pushes Artefizio to promote the practice of creative recovery . Artefizio springs from the insight of Fabio Ortolani Petrillo , an artist that has always been sensitive to both environmental issues and arts related to recycling and reusing poor materials.
